Diego SanchezTeammate, former teammate, or whatever you want to call him, Diego Sanchez does not appear to be a Georges St-Pierre fan… or a Rory MacDonald fan, for that matter.

Sanchez is pulling for Johny Hendricks and Jake Ellenberger to win their respective match-ups.

“I am 110% pulling for @JohnyHendricks to beat GSP and @EllenbergerMMA to smash rory #USA,” Sanchez tweeted on Friday.

St-Pierre is set to defend his welterweight title against Hendricks at UFC 167 in November in Las Vegas. GSP’s TriStar Gym teammate, Rory MacDonald, squares off with Ellenberger at next week’s UFC on Fox 8 in Seattle.

St-Pierre, over the years, has worked out at Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA in New Mexico, but that doesn’t mean Sanchez considers him a teammate.

When questioned by a fan about why he would “stab a brother” like St-Pierre after he had visited Jackson’s so often, Sanchez responded, “If you call 3 one week visits in 6 years often. I don’t!”

St-Pierre and fellow Jackson’s fighter Carlos Condit split camps before they fought each other, neither of them utilizing coach Greg Jackson, because they considered themselves teammates.

Sanchez has competed at lightweight, welterweight and middleweight during his UFC tenure, but has mostly bounced back and forth between 155 and 170 pounds.

He next steps into the Octagon at UFC 166 to face former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez. If he ever returns to 170 pounds, however, it doesn’t appear Sanchez will have much trepidation stepping into the cage with St-Pierre, if the opportunity were to arise.
